The global contrast media market size reached US$ 4.5 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to reach US$ 5.8 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.11% during 2023-2028.
Contrast media, also known as contrast agents, is a group of chemical agents that aid in the characterization of pathology by improving the contrast resolution of an imaging modality. It is administered through injectors via oral, intravascular, and rectal routes. It helps enhance the visibility of the targeted body organs, tissues, and blood vessels during an ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. It also allows radiologists to determine the difference between aberrant and normal tissues of the body in images. As a result, contrast media finds extensive applications in the healthcare industry, especially in radiology, interventional cardiology, diagnostic imaging centers, and ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) around the world.
Contrast Media Market Trends:
The growing global geriatric population, which is highly susceptible to various chronic medical disorders, represents one of the key factors positively influencing the market. The rising prevalence of cancer, neurological, and cardiovascular diseases are also significantly increasing the demand for diagnostic imaging procedures and contrast media. In line with this, the growing preferences for minimally invasive (MI) medical procedures and surgeries, as they require smaller incisions and cause less postoperative pain, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery, are offering lucrative growth opportunities to manufacturers. Apart from this, due to a significant rise in medical tourism, the demand for radiopharmaceuticals is increasing across the globe. Furthermore, the advent of digital solutions for precise and effective management of contrast media is driving the demand for contrast media. This, along with the rising focus of several companies on launching innovative products to minimize waste generation during contrast media manufacturing, is strengthening the market growth. Moreover, increasing investments by several leading market players in extensive research and development (R&D) activities are anticipated to propel market growth.
